Hi.

I'm documenting my journey to motherhood while sharing my favorites and tips along the way. I'm so glad you're here. 

Halloween

Halloween

Priscilla’s first Halloween was memorable, more so for Seth and I as parents, I’m sure, but still— so fun.

I ended up dressing her in two costumes, not intentionally, but that’s what happens with a baby witch headband jumps into your Target shopping basket ;) and you JUST so happen to own a baby LBD {little black dress}.

So, during the day she was… Priscilla, the infant witch:

We were a hit at our errands :) I’m just wishing I would have found a black witches hat for myself. Next year. I’m learning that not everything needs to be perfectly twee. I’m no Instagram influencer, just a Minneapolis mom having a blast with her baby. Simple is good.

For nighttime we all {Seth included} dressed up as skeletons. I’m often grateful for Amazon Prime, finding an expensive but specific costume made easy with just one click.

Living in a condo means not getting many trick-or-treaters. Therefor, I knew not to go overboard on candy. I ended up picking these fun sized bars up… slim pickings the morning of Halloween. They’re actually delicious, I don’t know why they were the only candies left.

For our “dinner,” Seth and I crafted a delicious cheese and charcuterie platter. I can always count on Seth to go all in for Halloween— it’s something I love about him. And this cocktail he made for me? Bewitching ;)

A great Halloween and another special “first” for our little, baby girl. I can’t wait to see what future Halloweens hold for her. Being a mom is truly so much fun.
